Bibliography of Materials on
Athabaskan Languages
This bibliography makes no pretense at completeness, but may be of use to those seeking information on other Athabaskan languages and on the family as a whole. For Athabaskan languages spoken outside of British Columbia, in some cases web sites devoted to these languages are a good source of bibliographic material. In particular, for references on Navajo, see the bibliography at the web site of the Navajo Language Academy.
